Nominally under drummer/vocalist Les DeMerle's brand, vocalist Bonnie Eisele, brings to DeMerle's infectious brand of jazz that necessary feminine vector. The repertoire on Comin' Home Baby is tried-and-true, well performed, and perfectly satisfying, as have been all similar DeMerle releases. Eisele proves equally capable on the up-tempo tunes ("Day In Day Out" and "I Love Being Here with You") as on the ballads ("The Nearness of You" and "Peel Me a Grape"). Johannes Bjerregaard is the consummate DeMerle pianist, possessing an orchestral performance style that is well informed by all jazz genre. Bassist Chris Luard tows the time-keeping line. DeMerle and Eisele duet effectively on "All Right, Okay, You Win" and "Comin' Home Baby." This is a durable act that delivers the goods to anyone interested in hearing the joy and challenge of singing jazz. DeMerle and Eisele sing as if they love doing it and in hearing this recording, I believe they do.
